Cornered Animal

When the Fitz hits the fan we can expect the Right to react as it's been trained to act in such situations, like a cornered feral animal. It's a moment where the mainstream media should consider whether it's time to, once again, hand their pages and airtime over to the Barbizon School of Former Prosecutors Defense Lawyers and other such partisan hacks or whether they choose to cover things with a bit of dignity.

The showing of "adult" Republicans such as Gergen and Thornburgh on some Sunday shows points to the possibility that the media will treat this seriously, but I'm not optimistic.
